Try some of the best sherries in the world and learn how they are made with a visit to one of the most important wineries in Jerez, capital of wine, horses and the cradle of flamenco. Currently, Gonzalez Byass is globally recognized as manufacturing wine and Brandy de Jerez. The company has a select range of products, highlighting the sherry Tio Pepe (world leader in sales of Fino), Soberano brandy (leader in Spain, the country of origin) and Lepanto with its distinctive bottle design Royal Factory of La Granja.
Sherry wines produced in this winery are made from the best Palomino grapes resulting in a young wine that is thoroughly mixed and ripe. Sherry aged for a year in oak barrels open air, being one of the few wines that improves with air contact. A noble and old sherry can educate and improve other younger ones. Older wines are stored in older barrels, hearth and constantly replenished, so that over time you can maintain the level of quality.
Carol Ann Duffy, Poet Laureate of Queen Elizabeth II, is one of the great exponents of the close ties that have historically and culturally united the British Empire and with sherry.
